Prayer Ministry

The Greater Work

Wednesday Evening Prayer Meeting

6:30 PM in Room 172 (or Join us on Zoom!)

Zoom Link. This dynamic prayer time is kingdom-focused:  our goal is to pray for the progress of the gospel across a wide range of ministries at East White Oak and beyond.  We frequently have mission teams and supported missionaries present during a portion of our time.  Then we pray together for the furtherance of God’s work.  Capture a greater vision of God’s gospel work, both locally and across the world.  Learn to pray biblically and effectively for His work.  Leave refreshed and renewed by God’s presence. Contact Pastor Jeff with questions. [email protected]

Sunday Morning Prayer Ministries

Prayer Corps (9:00 & 10:30 AM)

Be part of a team that prays once a month during a Sunday morning worship service in Room 173 for the effective ministry of God’s word among the congregation and for a wide range of personal and ministry needs.


Why do we pray? As we are seeking to be worshipers, maturing in Christ, we believe that prayer is essential.  Prayer, after all, is an expression of worship.  When we pray, we declare to God His worth.  When we pray, we exalt Jesus as King, as Savior, as Lord.  When we pray, we commune with the Holy Spirit, who comforts us and guides us into truth.

Our church vital signs also shape how we pray.  We pray rooted in scripture, not seeking some ecstatic experience but seeking to be grounded in truth.  We pray to be growing in Christ, drawing near to Him in sweet fellowship.  We pray so that we can make disciples, asking for Christ’s help in being His ambassadors to take the Gospel all over the world.

Our pathways to discipleship reveal the ways that we pray.  We have all kinds of prayer opportunities, some of which are described on this page, and others are imbedded in the life of our church.  In all of these, we seek to pray together in large group worship settings with everyone welcome, in Bible Fellowships which bring greater knowledge of personal needs, and in small groups where the personal relationships and prayer connections are very close.

In all of these, we are seeking to be worshipers, maturing in Christ by prayer.
